You are right
I dug out the records and it says genetic renal dysplasia
I live here in Ct. and would welcome any suggestions as to a new breeder.
We just love mastiffs and are simply looking for a new family member. We would leave breeding and showing to the experts.
If it hadn't been for the outrage I have seen here I might never have trusted any breeder again.
As it is,we feel we just picked a bad one, and there are good ones to be found.
We also would consider rescuing if anyone hears of a dog in need of a home.
Any of you folks are welcome to visit us anytime and we have references and a vet that can be contacted.
Thank you for allowing me to unburden myself here...

There are many bad breeders, but there are several really good ones. In your neck of the woods, Kelly Verbridge of Havest Haze Mastiffs is good and I think she has a breeding soon. Check out her website. I'll keep my ear open for any others up there and best wishes for a healthy, happy baby in your near future. Most of us that are indignant about breeders like Angie only do this for the passion of the breed. We rarely even break even on a litter and most of us could care less about whether a dog is shown or not. Our priority is GOOD homes.

Please go back and read one of the penned threads on how to find a good breeder. It might help you weed out the bad once. There are definite red flags.

Also, remember that every breeder can have a "fatal breeding" (one where something just didn't click), but the difference between a good breeder and one of for your money is that a good breeder will work with you and be there with you in good times AND in bad times.

By the way, I look for her to take up where she left off once she is off probation in Oct. 2014.   She has rejoined facebook since around the first of December under Heska Mastiffs(Proud Owners) ...FYI..
